South by South West Rose
A rosé that stands out from the crowd of pink plonk – made from a base of free run Shiraz and Viognier juice. This base provides the backbone of the wine and delivers the fruit sweetness, vibrancy, and structure. The depth and texture comes from a blend of barrel fermented Sauvignon Blanc pressings and barrel fermented Chenin Blanc. It is this addition that truly adds a layer of complexity and tightens the wine with a distinctive savoury element, heightened aromatics, and that little bit of mouthfeel that can sometimes be missed with rosé.
On the nose there is a very pretty floral character coupled with ripe stone fruits and hints of spice. The palette maintains a more savoury, structure driven appearance with bright crunchy acidity that is softened by the lushness of the fruit. The intricacies of multiple varieties come together to create a summer drink that is as complex as it is delicious.
Colour: a translucent pale peach shade.
Nose: is fresh and bright, with scents of summer red fruits, with a slight hint of rose petal and Turkish delight hidden amongst the aromatics of the Viognier and Sauvignon Blanc.
Palate: is rich with flavours of berries and cherries, balanced with delicate hints of rose water. The natural fruit sweetness of this wine is balanced by a lively mineral acidity, a dash of savoury spice, and added length provided by the oak. This is a well-balanced Rosé with great mouthfeel and clarity, a little edge from the barrel ferment and clean acidity to finish.
